Episode 12

(Suicide farce)

"Oh my. You are such a silly girl, aren't you? Why did you have to take things too hard?" Simon Gu said, fear written all over his face. He immediately sent Yvonne to the hospital upon picking her up from the bed. A huge sense of relief washed over him when the nurses started to lead her to the emergency room.

At the end of the day, Yvonne Gu was still a part of the family despite everything she had done. As her father, he was responsible for the well-being of his daughter. It disturbed him that she could go as far as committing suicide just because of their misunderstanding. What's worse, he didn't even have a chance to say a word.

"Look at what you've done. If it weren't for you, this wouldn't have happened! How can you do this?! If something bad happened to Yvonne, I'll make sure you'll regret what you did," Wendy exclaimed, pointing her fingers towards Simon. "Are you even aware of what you did? You slapped her in the face! I could never do that! Yvonne is my daughter and she is very special to me. How can you accuse me of such a thing?! You will definitely regret all of this if something bad happens to her."

"Enough!" he yelled, extremely upset. He didn't think he had the strength to hear any more painful words coming from Wendy. "If you have really taken good care of her, how can this happen? If she was in really good hands, she wouldn't even think about doing such a thing! This is entirely your fault!"

He yelled even more loudly. "Don't pass the blame on me! You're the one who's been hounding us ever since you've had a son!" Wendy said, trying to sound reasonable.

"That's not fair. You're not making any sense!" Simon Gu was about to argue further when a nurse interrupted them. "Why are you guys fighting in here? This is a hospital. People don't go here to scream at each other. Can't you see you're disturbing our patients? Better go home if you don't have the decency to act like civilized people."

Simon and Wendy were rendered speechless. They stood aside as the nurse passed, too embarrassed by the scene they had caused. They realized how ridiculous it was to fight while Yvonne was still in the emergency room, hovering between life and death.

Wendy couldn't help but silently cry. She felt extremely ashamed after being reprimanded in such a way that she couldn't do anything but bitterly wipe away her tears. Meanwhile, Simon was still anxious about Yvonne's current condition. But seeing Wendy cry flooded him with guilt. "There's no need to cry.

I'm sure Yvonne will be fine," he said as he patted her lightly on the back, trying to offer some comfort.

"Is there anything that we can do?" she asked, choking back her tears. "Yvonne is my only daughter. I don't want something bad to happen to her. I don't think I could take it…" Wendy said as he leaned in Simon's arms, taking advantage of his efforts to console her.

"There's no need to cry," he said in response, trying to offer some comfort. "I'm sure everything will be all right."

He looked at the operating room, worry still visible in his eyes. He didn't even trust his own words but he had no choice but to hope for the best. After waiting for an hour and a half, the operating room finally opened. "Doc, what happened? How's our daughter?" they asked as soon as they entered inside.

"The patient is stable now. However, she is still very emotional. Taking her to see a psychiatrist would be very beneficial. I highly suggest that you monitor her condition closely," the doctor explained to both of them.

"Why did you even bring me to the hospital? Get me out of here!" Yvonne shouted at the distance, knowing full well that Wendy and Simon are in close proximity.

"It's okay, dear. I'm here," Wendy said, approaching Yvonne's bedside table. "You silly girl. Why did you try to kill yourself? What were you even thinking?!"

"Mom, leave me alone. I don't have any more to say to you. Let me just end my life," Yvonne cried out, not wanting to see her mother. "Why can't you just let me die? Can't you see that I don't want to be saved? Death is my only reprieve seeing as I'm not important to this family and to anyone else."

"Can you stop talking about such nonsense?!" Wendy exclaimed, frowning. "Your Dad and I love you very much. How can you say such a thing?!"

Yvonne stared blankly, oblivious to her words. She immediately calmed down upon seeing Wendy bring her father towards her. "Dad..." she said, her voice weak.

"What are you waiting for? Talk to your daughter," Wendy said, shoving Simon in an attempt to make him talk.

"Yvonne..." he said, trying to complete his sentence but finding it hard to do so. Staring at her pale face, he knew he needed to say something.

"Cheer up. Crying doesn't do you any good." He couldn't bear to scold her given her current condition. "Tell me. Have I ever treated you badly?" he asked as he sat beside her bed. "You are creating false scenarios inside your head."

"But..." she said, trying to find the right words to say. "It may be true that you've never treated me badly ever since I was a child. But everything changed when my brother returned. First, you handed over the company. And you know what's worse? You even slapped me in the face! You've never done that before."

"I didn't do that because of your brother. I did that out of shock when I discovered that you got pregnant without even getting married," he said, trying to explain. Up until now, he still couldn't understand why did she let that happen.

"We should put the past behind us," Wendy said, interrupting their conversation. "No more of that nonsense. From now on, you should remember what happened so you can avoid doing the same thing in the future," she continued, trying to ease the situation.

"You are my daughter. Handing over the company to Aron doesn't mean that I don't love you. But I need to be considerate," Simon said. He's still unable to accept her daughter's affair but he decided to let it go.

"You know nothing about the business since you grew up under your mother's protection. Aron, on the other hand, has a broad work experience and he has already managed his own company abroad. I also made sure to confirm his reputation before making my decision," he further explained. "As you can see, our family is struggling as of the moment. The only way to survive this is to hand over the company to someone capable."

Simon stared at his daughter, trying to see if they could arrive at a better understanding. "Aron is your brother. He won't leave you alone. Besides, I have already set aside enough money for you and your mom to spend for the rest of your lives," he said, trying to offer some reassurance.

"I just want to be with you, Dad. That's all." Yvonne then went to his father, lifting her arms to embrace him.

"Don't worry. I'll make sure to stay by your side," Simon replied, touched by Yvonne's gesture. He welcomed the embrace, making the most out of the moment.

Yvonne stole a quick glance at Wendy, winking at her as she leaned into his father.

Simon, totally unaware of what just happened behind his back, decided to ask what had been bothering him.

"Yvonne, I still want to clarify something. Is it true that Charles is the father of your child?"
